I am looking for any Queen/solo sheet music and guitar tablature around. Does anyone know where I can order them from? I really want the Mr. Bad Guy piano book I have seen before.

The Off the Record books are excellent. Full scores. But they are out of print. You can find them on eBay often, though. The Off the Record books are:

Queen
Greatest Hits
Greatest Hits II
Classic Queen
Innuendo

If you are just looking for guitar, I believe there are books that have just the guitar parts from the Off the Record books, and they are still in print, having been released recently. These books are:

Greatest Hits
Classic Queen

There is also a book called "The Best of Queen" which is in print, and I believe contains the same versions of the scores from the Off the Record books. This contains some of the songs from the Off the Record books and one that isn't in any of them ("I Was Born to Love You").

The ones that are still in print can be bought from sheetmusicplus.com and probably Amazon as well.

I have also an Off The Record book which is called 'Rock Legends', has a grey cover with silver printing.
Contains OTR versions of:
Another one bites the dust, Bohemian rhapsody, Crazy little thing called love, Fat bottomed girls, Killer queen, We are the champions, We will rock you & You're my best friend, so merely sort of an edit of 'Greatest hits'.

Interesting. I'd heard of that book but could not find it anywhere or even a description of what was in it. I assumed it contained some combination of the songs from the other books, but could never confirm it. Thanks for that info.

There's also a decent tab-book for Queen Rocks.

For some reason I didn't buy it, but I seem to remember that all the Greatest Hits songs on it just had the guitar-tab lifted from the respective OTR versions. But the transcriptions of It's Late, Sheer Heart Attack, Tear It Up and Put Out The Fire looked good.
